  1. Definition of debut: a person's first appearance or performance in a particular capacity or role. Mariano's first debut was as an on-loan player. His second debut three years later will be as a signed-on player. It's a different capacity or role, hence the term 'second debut' could well be justified. Just an opinion.

    Barry Clixby played for Rovers in the 1967-68 season. He made one senior appearance that season at Halifax on January 26, 1968. I think it was as a substitute. Rovers lost the game 12-8. The following week Rovers won 9-0 at Hull KR in the Challenge Cup first round in a blizzard. I don't know whether Barry made any other first-team appearances for Featherstone. Mark Las Palmas will know more than me about it.
  3. Sorry to disappoint elppaxr2i but there was no lazy journalism so he shouldn't jump to the wrong conclusions. The coverage is not out of date at all. It us bang up to date. The P & C reporter concerned spoke personally to Jon Sharp on Tuesday morning (two days ago) and the information he was given that Briggs and Taulapapa were both doubtful and would have late fitness tests. The quotes from Jon Sharp are from Tuesday's interview. Ridiculous comments from elppaxr2i who obviously knows more about the fitness of Rovers players than Jon Sharp. .

    Statement just released by RFL Toulouse Olympique and Super League licensing The RFL has confirmed that Toulouse Olympique do need to appear in the 2010 Co-operative Championship Grand Final to earn the right to apply for a Super League licence from the 2012 season onwards. Contrary to some reports, the mechanism by which Toulouse can apply for a Super League licence remains unchanged from the position in 2008, when the last round of licensing was completed. Should they reach the Grand Final, Toulouse Olympique will also have to address factors that are not relevant to UK-based Championship clubs, including how a second French club can add to Super League.
